    3 men

    4 women

    7 total

    3 men / 7 total = 198 men / x total

    using cross products

    3*x = 7 * 198

    divide each side by 3

    x = 7*198/3

    x = 462

    There are 462 workers

    If you mean 3 men and 1 women for a total of 4 workers when you state a ratio of men and women in a certain factory is 3 to 4.

    3/4 = 198/x

    Using cross products

    3x = 4 * 198

    Divide each side by 3

    3x/3 = 4*198/3

    x = 264

    264 workers

    It all depends on how you define ratio of men and women in a certain factory is 3 to 4. This is incorrect phrasing and I took it to be men to women. You cannot have a ratio of men and women.
